Quality Friends are Priceless
It can be so difficult to maintain the energy needed to deflect negativity if you have to deal with such behaviours on a daily basis or on any basis. When negativity comes into our space it doesn’t just thrust the negativity at us but sometimes it takes up residence for a day or two within us. It’s hard to determine how it’s going to affect us because that all depends on our current disposition. If you are stressed or overwhelmed you are already in a vulnerable position.
It’s a similar feeling to being tired and run down and someone with a cold comes near you, it’s harder to fight off those germs then if you were well rested and feeling strong.
It can be difficult to rally up a positive state of mind and being when you’re at this point but it is so important for your health, mind, body and spirit.
In addition to journaling I also talk with my closest friends that I trust when I feel at odds with either someone or a circumstance that I feel helpless in and they do the same with me.
When I feel I can’t find the answers I need or I feel the urge for a little extra boost of inspiration I always find it within my friends. I don’t think they always know how they’ve helped but sometimes it takes that one moment of understanding or those compassionate words of wisdom in their own special way and they’ve set me off in an entirely new and positive direction.
As single moms, as women, we need our girlfriends to keep us sane, to keep us grounded, and to keep us real. If you’ve got great friends there isn’t anything you can’t battle, overcome or defeat.
Quality friends are Priceless!
